July 6, 2001

If I didn't receive the Oracle access email message ("Welcome to the Integrated System"), why didn't I?
Between Tuesday, June 26, and Thursday, June 28, an email was sent to those of you who will be given access to a new responsibility in the Integrated System on July 9. That means you:

  • have completed all of the required training for at least one of your Oracle responsibilities,
  • submitted a signed confidentiality agreement to Human Resources, and
  • if you are a temp or Medical Center employee, had an Oracle Access Form for Non-U.Va. Employees submitted by your ISP advisor.

For those of you who:

you will receive an individual email message when those tasks have been completed. If you think you have met the all of the requirements, but did not receive the Oracle access email message, please check with your supervisor, or contact Carole Horwitz at

First Things First
Before you can follow the instructions in the Oracle access message, you will have to do the following:

  • Load the Jinitiator
  • Download and install the VPN
  • Create your VPN account
  • Logon to the VPN

New and Updated University Policies and Procedures Available
The central financial departments have taken the Integrated System implementation as an opportunity to review University policies and procedures, not only to comply with the new Oracle system, but to update them to reflect current University practices. The revisions that have been completed to date have been incorporated into the Financial and Administrative Policies and Procedures website at
